Kyleigh and Charlie hosted a beautiful wedding at the Italian-inspired Bella Cosa, a Florida wedding venue in Lake Wales. Kyleigh and Charlie's wedding day at the Italian-inspired Florida wedding venue, Bella Cosa Lakeside, was beautiful from start to finish! It was a perfect Florida wedding with sunshine, trees full of Spanish moss, and a bride and groom filled with love and joy! As destination wedding photographers and videographers, we also had the pleasure of capturing Kyleigh and Charles’ private elopement in Alabama Hills, California a month before their wedding at Bella Cosa Lakeside. Being able to celebrate with this couple twice in two stunning locations was unforgettable. You can watch their elopement film here!
Built in 1925, Bella Cosa is an impressive Florida wedding venue on the beautiful shores of Lake Pierce in Lake Wales. From its stunning waterfront views to the details of the rustic Italian inspired architecture you can’t help but fall in love with this historic estate. Breath-taking views and luxurious interiors provide endless photo opportunities for your special day. Bella Cosa provides both indoor and outdoor options for reception and ceremony that can host from either 150-300 guests. You may choose from the indoor ballroom full of tasteful decor and shining oak floors or, like our couple, choose the outdoor location set up under charming, moss-filled oak trees overlooking those stunning lakeside views.
The bride and groom got ready in Bella Cosas guest suites with their family and wedding party. The bright interior and beautiful natural lighting of the rooms created a fantastic space for these two to get ready before the wedding day. Kyleigh's details included peach and neutral tones to compliment her wedding day florals. Her Justin Alexander wedding dress from Enchanted Bridal Lake Mary was absolutely stunning! It featured a form-fitting satin bodice with lace detailed sleeves and a veil to complete the whole look. Kyleigh’s bridesmaids all wore different style dresses in those neutral and peach tones while Charles and his groomsmen all sported classic black tuxedos.
Kyleigh and Charles did their first look before the wedding in Bella Cosas captivating courtyard.. The beautiful windows, arches and architecture created the perfect backdrop for their dreamy portraits and wedding party photos that followed shortly after.The wedding ceremony was held lakeside under the picturesque oaks and immaculate green grounds. With Bella Cosas breathtaking views you hardly need anything extra to elevate the space, but the florals by Fern + Sunpalm were a lovely touch bringing in those peach and neutral tones to the venue.
Shortly after, the reception was held just a few steps over back at Bella Cosas romantic courtyard, filled with that old world Italian inspired atmosphere. Our bride stepped away for a quick change into a short, fun feather filled dress and then rejoined her guest as Liquid Entertainment Orlando got the party started! Kyleigh and Charles stayed on the dance floor for the rest of the evening with all their closest friends and family by their side.
